One big difference between the May 3rd, 1999 tornado in Moore, and last month's big tornado there, is the advancement of the internet.
U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Oklahoma, Sanford Coats, said today's cyber technology makes life easier - for fraudsters.
"The internet and communication have made it proliferate. It's much easier for those around the country and around the world to never even set foot in Oklahoma, or the United States, and try to capitalize on the disasters here."
Coats joined State Attorney General Scott Pruitt in helping educate law officers from around the state on identifying current scams.
Particpants in Tuesday's Disaster Relief Fraud Training seminar in Oklahoma City also learned about federal and state laws regarding scammers.
